Easter at Glenrowan 2018

Wangaratta OPM and Ovens and Murray DRA OPM

Easter is a busy time for the Wangaratta Rifle Club at the Glenrowan range, where the Ovens and Murray DRA prize shoot (Saturday)  and the Wangaratta Prize shoot (Sunday) are contested.


Four shooters from the East Central District Rifle Association contested The Ovens and Murray DRA Prize shoot  on the Saturday and between them managed a first and second.  David Wallace won the F Class B grade  with a score of 203.14 while Mart Kelly came second in F Class Target Rifle with 203.18.  The highlight for our local shooters was their consistency with Graeme Kerr 5th in F Class A grade and a score of 204.16 and Robert Irving and Brian Houlihan not that far behind them. Note that our shooters were within one point of each other although they were in different classes. Robert Irving’s 8th place in his first open prize shoot is an outstanding effort as the conditions were far from easy

The consistency continued on Sunday with Marty Kelly and Graeme Kerr with only one point separating them; Marty 175.10 and third place in F Class Target Rifle and Graeme 174.10 in F class A grade and fourth place.  In the grand aggregate only 0.2 points separated Marty 378.28 and Graeme 378.26 what a fantastic effort with Marty finishing 3rd in F Class Target Rifle and Graeme 4th in F class  A grade.

The Wangaratta Prize shoot, on Sunday, is contested over 300, 500 and 600 metres the results for our ECDRA shooters were Marty Kelly 60.3,57.4,58.3 = 175.10 taking third place in F/TR and Graeme Kerr 58.4, 58.3, 58.3 =174.10 taking fourth place.
